Welcome Back to #NASCAR Spencer Gallagher

Welcome Back to #NASCAR Spencer Gallagher

Regardless of his #Win, Gallagher Is Ineligible For The 2018 Xfinity Series Playoffs

Welcome Back Spencer GallagherSpencer Gallagher’s racing career began at age twelve in his hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. He began his career racing in a myriad of different classes at his home track, The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

In 2011, Gallagher began climbing NASCAR’s ladder system, making his first career NASCAR K&N Pro Series West start at Phoenix International Raceway, and earned his first top-10 finish on the road course at Portland (Ore.) International Raceway. Gallagher made two starts in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Series the same season before competing in the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) Racing Series.

After time in the ARCA Racing Series seasons in 2012 and 2013, and his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Kansas Speedway also in 2013; Gallagher made a big career move in 2015 by stepping up to contest the full NCWTS season and compete for Rookie of the Year honors.

In 2016, The Las Vegas native competed in another full-time NCWTS season where he collected three top-fives, 15 top-10’s and two pole awards. Gallagher also made the move to the NASCAR Xfinity Series part-time; competing in seven NXS races, with a best finish of eighth-place at Daytona International Speedway.

However, Gallagher’s biggest NASCAR moment was followed closely by a disappointing low.

On April 28, 2018, Spencer Gallagher picked up his first NASCAR National Series win by crossing the finish line first in the Xfinity Series ‘Sparks Energy 300’ at the Talladega Superspeedway. Three days later, he was indefinitely suspended from NASCAR for violating the sanctioning body’s substance abuse policy.

Gallagher agreed to participate in the ‘Road to Recovery’ Program, a requirement before he is eligible to be cleared to race again. Now, two months later, Spencer Gallagher was reinstated by NASCAR.

GMS Racing announced Gallagher will return to the No. 23 Chevrolet next weekend at Kentucky Speedway.

“The whole GMS organization is very proud of Spencer (Gallagher) for getting reinstated after completing NASCAR’s Road to Recovery program after the results we received post-Talladega,” GMS Racing president Mike Beam said in a release. “Spencer will return to the No. 23 at Kentucky Speedway and then again after our agreed contracts are fulfilled.”

Despite his victory, Gallagher is ineligible for the Xfinity Series playoffs because he hasn’t attempted to start every race this season.
